Abstract

Cement dust exposures has been reported to result in various occupational health problems and long term complications. However, effects of cement dust exposures on biochemical, oxidative stress indicators and Haematological profiles in Nigerians cement factory workers are scarce, therefore the present study is aimed at determining the effects of cement dust exposure on uric acid, creatinine, total protein, albumin, globulin, copper and selenium levels and Haematological profile in forty-five cement factory workers and thirty controls office workers. Uric acid, creatinine, albumin and total protein were determined using Hitachi 902 auto analyser, total globulin was computed by subtracting albumin level from total protein concentration while haematological parameters were determined using Sysmex. Uric acid, copper and creatinine levels were significantly higher in cement factory workers compared with controls (p
